What I've Been Up To...

I'm learning...



How to spin my own yarn!! :) It's a process, and I still have A LOT to learn, but I am so excited with what I've spun so far! I love spinning too... I sort of feel like a pioneer woman! The only thing missing? A house in the middle of no where, and a front porch over looking my many many acres. ;) Some day!

I'm working on some new knitting projects as well...


I LOVE that seed stitch. :) Same yarn as the last scarf, but this time it's red!



I hope this turns out as fantastic as I am envisioning it! It's a basket weave pattern. - Both are going to be scarves... yes, I know! I live in Arizona, and winter here is pretty much over... if you want to even dare call it winter... more like fall. ;)

But!! It's been raining [off and on] since Saturday night!!!


I am LOVING this rain! :) It's funny to see most Arizonians freaking out about the rain. It's like it's snowing in Phoenix, not raining! :)

Here are my girls the other day watching : "Horton Hears A Who" ... they were so into it!




Zoe was into it for about 30 minutes... then she was off and running. ha ha! The attention span in a 2 year old is pretty minimal. I am sure most of you understand. :)

Well, that's all for now!!! What have YOU been up to lately?

Wow beautiful yarn. I am wanting to learn how to knit I just need to get organized first. That is what I have been up to trying to get organized. Thanks for sharing

How the HECK do you take such beautiful pictures in indoor lighting? I just cannot figure it out. I tried taking some "studio" pictures tonight and posted them to my blog but everything is so yellow. WHAT am I doing wrong? I'm not really asking you to solve my problems, I'm really just trying to tell you that your photography skills AMAZE me! That yarn looks so gorgeous and your girls on the leather - beaUTIFUL! - Sigh. Someday maybe I'll be as good as you are. (or not...)

Great knitting projects. I am afraid to start a new project until my other one is finished for fear I will never get back to it. Love Zoe in the headband, so cute!
